Definitely a rare find for the condition and price
Not too much at all actually, had a few problems with the factory alarm button (s)
Gearbox & clutch is on the way out, due to a lot of torture, but has held out really well considering.
Front passenger side power window is a little sticky.
I love VL Calais', I bought a Calais turbo 5speed about a month ago, it's my baby, interior is immaculate, small amount of rust around the front window seals, but other than that, clean as.
Very quick car, although needs a blow-off valve & inter-cooler, runs rather hot compared to my old VL (non-turbo) but that just goes without saying. Strongly recommend the VL Calais Turbo, good all-round car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
